Advanced Bionics was founded in 1993 by Alfred E. Mann with the mission to develop implantable patient care solutions that improve quality of life. Advanced Bionics was acquired by the Sonova Group in 2009 and began working with Phonak, a hearing aid company, allowing for greater access to engineering and technology advancements.

Advanced Bionics implants are upgradable, meaning as technology improves, the device can too, without need for additional surgeries.

Current processors include the Neptune, which is the only “swimmable” processor in the world and the Platinum Series which is a small body-worn option. The current implant from Advanced Bionics is the HiRes 90K family which features 16 independent current sources and a removable magnet for MRI compatability.
